Educating and mobilizing parents and caregivers across the nation around healthy kids and communities. Our work focuses on healthy schools and public spaces, marketing to kids, healthy drinks, dismantling the school to prison pipeline; amplifying resilience and decreasing trauma with social-emotional development practices in grades K-12.
Parents should be able to trust that anything recommended “for children” is actually safe for children. By adopting CCFC’s Kids’ App Store Standards – simple rules that require a human review of each app and ban in-app purchases, unfair advertising, and illegal data collection – Google can make parents’ lives easier, and kids’ experiences safer.
It just doesn't add up. The healthy school meal standards have been successful, any way you slice it. Yet USDA Secretary Perdue has proposed rolling back or delaying important standards around sodium and whole grains.Perhaps USDA Secretary thinks parents aren't watching. Or that we don't care. Or that we also think the health of our kids doesn't matter. Or maybe he's playing politics with our kids health. We're speaking out. Join us in telling USDA Secretary Perdue that moms and parents say NO to cutting healthy school meals.
Young kids don't need to spend time on social media!
